2016 Lincoln MKS vs. 2017 Lincoln MKZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKS than the Lincoln MKZ. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lincoln MKS and the Lincoln MKZ in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKS as you will with the Lincoln MKZ, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Lincoln MKS or the Lincoln MKZ, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lincoln MKS and the Lincoln MKZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKS is much wider than the Lincoln MKZ, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln MKS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lincoln MKZ.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lincoln MKS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lincoln MKZ.

Handling
The Lincoln MKS has a larger turning radius than the Lincoln MKZ, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKS is significantly less powerful than the Lincoln MKZ. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKS and the Lincoln MKZ. The Lincoln MKS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lincoln MKZ.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ.
